Deputy Attorney General: Donald Trump can't fire special counsel Robert Mueller

If Trump fires Mueller there will be champagne toasts in the Kremlin, fear and dread in the Republican cloakrooms of the House and Senate, impeachment resolutions filed by members of both parties, a constitutional crisis of the first order of magnitude and a premature and unhappy ending for the Trump presidency.

Rosenstein said "I think the answer is no" but said it would depend on the circumstances. Under the specific circumstances of this case, however, with his longtime friend James Comey at the center of the inquiry, Mueller's the wrong choice. He is scheduled to testify before two congressional hearings on Tuesday and is likely to face even more pointed questions about the Russian Federation probe and the independence of the Justice Department in light of Ruddy's comments. Robert Mueller isn't a contestant on The Apprentice. "If there were not good cause it wouldn't matter what anyone said". When the attorney general refused, Nixon fired him - and when the deputy attorney general refused, Nixon fired him as well.

"I have determined that a special counsel is necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome", Rosenstein said last month.

If questions arise about what matters Sessions should stay away from, he said, a career official in Rosenstein's office is consulted. It says Mueller planned to interview top current and former intelligence officials about their interactions with Trump.

The statement came after Sen.

As special counsel Robert Mueller builds his legal team, Mr Trump's allies have begun raising questions about the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's impartiality, implying he can not be trusted to lead the probe. He is nearly certain to be asked about the possibility of the president firing Mueller. Rosenstein responded: "No I have not".

But in this particular case, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from anything relating to the Russian Federation investigation.


"I mean Robert Mueller, there's some real conflicts", he explained. Doubt, however, has been cast on that explanation because of cryptic testimony from former FBI Director James Comey last week.

"We're not going to let the President choose who conducts this investigation", he said. I said, ;hey, I never said I spoke to the president, ' and interestingly enough they never denied my underlying report.

Republicans in Congress are also shaking off the notion that Trump could fire Mueller.

Democratic senators on the committee attempted to clarify the boundaries of Sessions' recusal, something they say is unclear.

Why would Trump's friend discuss this publicly? Now they go for obstruction of justice - phony story.

"Why don't you tell me?"
